My composition I wrote for honors high school concert band and university first-second year wind ensemble will be premiered on Sunday, December 9, 2018 by the Drexel University wind ensemble in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In addition, my private consulting firm website is now open. Now accepting clients for my course offerings and opportunities this summer. Let’s do something cool.

Think about this word: Homosapian.

The word ‘homo’ means human.  And the word ‘sapian’ means think.  Put these two words together and Homosapian is a human who thinks. However, I do not believe even the slightest that we are humans who think.

I have to add another ‘sapian’ to the word: Homosapian.

And then, we have a new word:

.

Homosapiansapian.

.

And this is who we are: Humans that think about our thinking.

Similar to composing, our minds work best when learning, thinking and creativity is both interest driven and production based. The essence of learning, thinking and creativity is in the overseeing of large-scale blueprints first, then delighting in details.

Learning, thinking and creating is an ever-changing process, often an embodied experience that cuts across the affordance of simple tools and meaning. It is often a very aesthetic and philosophic process. We need to play with our inner thoughts, creativity, and learning processes that operates similar to structural glue – not outwardly obvious in many cases.

As a developing educator, accomplished musician, polemical writer, and active researcher, every project I complete in my life allows me to reflect on the person I am in society, and what difference I can make every single day.

Think, learn, and create in the moment.
